Puchased 1999 Monte Carlo Z34 from previous owner. The owner had taken very good care of the car, but things keep happening to it. About a month after purchasing it, I had to spend $900 to have the Ignition Module/Control Unit replaced. Now the power sterring hose is leaking.

In the last 5 years my power steering hose has had to be repaired at least 6 times and it just happened again on the way home. The last time it was fixed they said the hose was loose from where it attached to the radiator and that was causing it to pull loose from the pump....
a year later and we are right back where we were before I have had two garages work on it including the dealer where I bought it. Twice i picked it up only to take it back the next day cause the hose had come loose again. I would love to know how to fix this problem once and for all. This is the only problem i have ever had with this car and it is 10 years old....

Power steering line pressure pump to gear box leaking. Virtually immposible to get at it to remove and replace it without some major component removal.
